Juno Sispes or Sospita (�Savior�) was the patron deity of Lanuvium, a Latin town south of Rome, and her aid was especially invoked in the pacification of the rebellious Latins. Later Juno Sospita was seen as special protector of the city of Rome during war, and she was depicted wearing a horned goatskin helmet and brandishing shield and spear. Her temple in the Forum Holitorium was vowed by the consul C. Cornelius Cethegus in thanksgiving for a victory over enemy tribes in Cisalpine Gaul and was dedicated in 194 BCE.
